K. Michelle has delivered a cinematic video for her new single, “Something About the Night,” in which she channels jazz legend Billie Holiday.
In the 1930s-themed visual, posted on YouTube, Michelle shows off her acting chops while performing in a jazz club. Although she shines on stage, she battles alcoholism and an overbearing manager backstage.
“I’m the star! They came to see me. This is my show!” declares K as she snatches a bottle of liquor.
The song appears on her Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart?, which is on pace to sell 80,000 to 85,000 copies in its opening week.
